According to the Daily Mail, the anti-war feminist organization, which was founded in 2002 by Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin, has denied taking money from Beijing, calling the accusation "ludicrous."
The probe was launched in November into Evans and her husband Neville Roy Singham, who is based in Shanghai, because of his ties to the CCP. A letter by the 10 GOP Members of the Natural Resources Committee said they were "deeply concerned" with the organization's ties to the foreign government and have requested all communication since 2017 between Code Pink, Singham, and the CCP.
In August, a New York Times report revealed that Singham "works closely with the Chinese government media machine and is financing its propaganda worldwide" by tracking millions of dollars to groups that "mix progressive advocacy with Chinese government talking points."
He is also co-producing a show with a Chinese university to "spread China's voice through the world," but claims he does not work with the CCP.
On its website, Code Pink states that "The US is heading towards a dangerous confrontation with China," and "Mounting hostilities are stopping us from addressing existential challenges like the climate crisis."
Code Pink has a long history of being anti-Israel and is reported to have contacts with Hamas. In 2014, Benjamin traveled to Iran's capital city, Tehran to attend a New Horizon conference put together by the country's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, from Jewish rights group Simon Wiesenthal Center, told the Daily Mail that Code Pink is "an over-the-top group that calls for social and policy changes that would change the face of the United States." He added, "Insofar as Israel is concerned, they would lead to Israel's destruction, without any question."
Since the Oct. 7 terror attack on Israel, the activist organization has organized anti-Israel marches and has called for a ceasefire in the ongoing war.
